Cancer Love Horoscope: April 2013
Get a thicker shell
Activity in your 10th House of Responsibility suggests that this is a good month to take the initiative in personal matters. Pushing the social envelope by being more adventurous and more assertive with others may not be easy ... but it's recommended. If you're unwilling to take charge and act with authority, you're likely to feel like other people are pushing you around or, perhaps worse, ignoring you.
The sensitive and self-protective side of your personality is not necessarily your greatest asset now. This isn't about shutting down your feelings but is about toughening up a little to get what you want. Meeting someone through your work or while being in the public eye is favored by the Aries New Moon on April 10.
If you're in a relationship, this is an excellent time to add some fuel to your emotional fire by doing something bold and different. Surprising your partner by taking risks is risky, but worth a try since standing up to them can produce frustration. Groups and friends will help you make connections and enjoy yourself when loving Venus moves into your 11th House of Pals and Teamwork on April 15. Contributing to a cause you care about is another way to meet someone or to bring more joy to a current alliance.
The Sun's entry into earthy and sensual Taurus on April 19 continues this positive trend of pleasure. Then the sexy Scorpio Full Moon falls in your 5th House of Romance on April 25, prompting you to be more direct about expressing your desires.
